I promised that I’d photoshop* this photo and add effects to the plastic lightsabres we were holding. It took me a couple of months to get around to it and about an hour to complete. Once I’d finished I pushed it out on to twitter as a bit of a joke.
I got a tweet back from @SharonHarper
How many of you did the things that Gever Tulley talks about? What about your children? What about your class? I know I was shocked to find that my son had been using a power drill and handsaw to make a “video camera” while he was in kindergarten. Are we too protective of our children and students? If so… what changed and when?
Another Gever Tulley TED Talk including a rollercoaster created by 7 year olds.
*I don’t actually have photoshop, but “paint.netted” doesn’t roll of the tongue in quite the same way.
